This weeks photo is from a visit to Rome and the Colosseum. We had a chance to go down onto the arena floor early in the morning. I shot this as an HDR and processed it to create a surreal effect (the lens flares are real) – you can almost imagine the Roman sun god Helios looking down on the games through the upper archway.
This week’s Friday Photo comes from down under. In 2007, we went to Victoria, Australia on vacation. The day we landed we were pretty much zombies, and found a nature preserve right in Melbourne. This guy was curled up in the notch of the tree, and the lines of his face with the wood caught my eye. We saw wild Koala’s later in the trip, but this captive one was the the best picture.
This week’s Friday Photo takes us back to Moab, and one of the collection of petroglyphs that can be found in the area. These prehistoric artifacts are under attack by the elements and the ravages of time. Worse, they’re also vulnerable to criminals who deface them for souvenirs or with graffiti. This one, on a wall above a stream, is largely intact, but we’ll never know what the rest of the tale says.
